Obituary for Anibar "Andy" Yglesias

Andy Yglesias of Manchester N.J. died peacefully Thursday, January 28,2021. Andy was the youngest of 12 children born to the late Francisco and Piedad Yglesias, September 3,1938 at Harlem Hospital N.Y. He grew up in the South Bronx and later reminisced with his family about jumping over roof tops through the neighborhood, weekly fire evacuations or recalling the delicious Cuban food his mother cooked. At the age of 17 he enlisted into the U.S. Air Force. His stories relating to his times spent at Thule Air Force Base, Greenland or Plattsburg AFB, were worth the price of admission. Andy regarded his service in the Air Force as a great life experience. After his discharge he embarked on various career paths, but made his mark in the Market Research Data Processing field. He became a highly regarded executive at W.R. Simmons Market Research N.Y. and eventually opened his own business. While raising his own family he resided in Staten Island, Tinton Falls, and Jackson N.J. Upon retirement from the business world, he and Linda moved to Manchester where he became a Jackson Twnshp school bus driver, a job he loved. Andy was a Fourth Degree Knight and PGK of Jackson Council #11529. Here he made lifelong friendships and learned what it meant to be a Brother with love and charity for any one in need. He had a great sense of humor and enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, playing cards with his L VW poker buddies, traveling with Linda and rooting for his Jets. He will always be remembered for his love of singing (popular or songs only he knew somehow), dancing, laughing, Christmas, partying and K of C gatherings. When Andy entered a room, he OWNED it, and loved to hold court and share his stories. He accomplished so much in his life but was held back in his wish to get his N.Y. Jets to another Super Bowl. On the first day of each season, he was heard to say "This is their year, there's no way they can lose" ... And so it went for more than 50 years. Andy was predeceased by his son Cory in 2019 and his 11 siblings: Mario, Julio, Frank, Gloria, Rene, Aurora, Olga, Hilda, Estella, Aida and Josephina (Jay). Surviving are his wife of 41 years, Linda, sons, Vincent and Richard and daughter Miki. Granddaughter Erica, 2 brothers-in-law Terrence and wife Linda LoGiurato, Philip and wife Marty LoGiurato. Left to remember the sound of his laughter are his many Yglesias and LoGiurato nieces and nephews, especially Godson Frank and Goddaughter Loretta. He was truly blessed with all the loving friends he was surrounded with over the years and he loved them all. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated Wednesday February 3 at 11 AM. For those who are more comfortable and understandably so the services will be live streamed. In lieu of flowers, Andy's favorites are Wounded Warrior, K of C Council 11529, a charity of your choice or do a good deed and help a friend. A celebration of Andy's life will be held at a safer time.
